And to be honest, the KLR doesn't get that great of mileage anyway. I averaged 240 miles/tank. If I could get 200 out of this small tank, I would be more than happy.
I've hit reserve at 240 riding two up but, solo I usually go anywhere from 270 - 290 before reserve & I've never ran a tank completely dry, having once gotten 306 before a fill up. The KLR is deffinatly a top heavy pig though.
